Windsor School Age Care Centre will be starting weekend care from February 15th 2014. This is an exciting ‘first of a kind’ service in Brisbane, which is part of an on-going commitment to providing greater flexibility for all families and their indiviual needs.
We are very pleased to announce that on Friday we had our final inspection and have now received service approval for use of the house. This represents a culmination of months of work by many people behind the scenes. To the WSACC community it represents another 50 child places and a fantastic space to engage the children. There are many new and exciting things on the horizon for WSACC in 2014 so stay tuned.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
On behalf of the Windsor School Age Care Centre (WSACC) committee, staff and local school community we are excited to announce that through a grant from the Australian Government’s Child Care Flexibility Fund, WSACC is now able to offer a ‘first of a kind’ weekend child care service in Brisbane.
Australian families are changing and more parents are working outside the traditional hours of 9am-5pm. The Child Care Flexibility Fund seeks to address these issues by supporting child care services to trial more flexible care approaches.
The purpose of this letter and brochure is to make you aware of the new service, seek your feedback and thoughts on the project, and to seek your early registration should the service be of interest to you. To register your interest, please visit www.register.wsacc.org.au.
You may download our brochure on Weekend Care for further information. Please address your questions and feedback to Kathryn Mahoney at the following e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
A reminder to all that early bird bookings close this Thursday 19th of September for vacation care. Bookings for vacation care can still be made after this date, but the standard pricing fee of $40 is applicable. Get in now to avoid dissapointment and save $5*.
How about this weather at the moment. It is the middle of winter and traditionally our dry season and it continues to rain. So WSACC has just invested in some new, u-beaut ponchos for the kids. These are not the disposable kind they are excellent quality rain capes with hoods.
We were lucky enough to secure a great deal through our new friends at kids outdoor gear. We were really impressed with the quality of the coats and believe they will be strong enough to last much longer than the plastic ones we initally purchased. We also think that they will keep the children dry as intended.
A special thanks to Linda from kids outdoor gear for giving us such a great price.
